Michael J. Fox,
A recently paroled ex-con who has trouble adjusting to the wacky normalcy of life outside of prison. He has spent the last three years behind bars after getting caught committing a crime and taking the rap for his much more dangerous pal.
The alumni cast of a space opera television series have to play their roles as the real thing when an alien race needs their help. However, they also have to defend both Earth and the alien race from a reptilian warlord.
A chain of events starts with the arrival of a mysterious suitcase in Miami. Arthur Herk, a corrupt business owner, wants to get his hands on the case. At the same time, two hit men want him whacked. Tired of his constant fixation on drinking and television, Herk's wife Anna and daughter Jenny decide to find new love interests in divorced dad Eliot Arnold and his son Matt. To add more complication, two thieves decide to steal the case and lead a Miami police team and two FBI agents on a wild goose chase that ends inside the Miami airport terminal.Written by

God said to Noah, "I am going to put an end to all people, for the Earth is filled with violence because of them. You are to bring into the Ark two of all living creatures to keep them alive with you."

In other words, life is hard, so you'd better find someone who'll be your partner. Eliot Arnold's story is a lot like Noah's, except Eliot's story takes place in Miami.

I think the thing that struck me first about the movie was how great the cast was. I think all off the actors were well suited for their rolls. Dave Berry wrote the book that the movie was based on, and his style of humor was evident through out the movie. There weren't any huge belly laughs, but there was almost a constant stream of chuckles. The plot of a Russian arms trader working out of a small Miami bar gives the opportunity for a group of characters including a drifter, a maid, few high school kids, a couple of hit men, the fbi, the local police, a corrupt business exec, a couple of small time crooks and an ad man to all become entangled in the same search for a stolen weapon. The story is told in kind of a merry-go-round fashion, with no one really stealing the show. You get to know a little about each character, when another story line comes along to merge with the one before it. I enjoyed the light hearted nature of the film and the humor.
